[Lingtyp] question about sound alternation/change

Dear all,

I'm interested in the extent to which synchronic alternations or sound
changes like [c] > [t] are common (or not). The palatal 'input' could also
be an affricate [t͡ʃ], the important thing being that the result is a
dental or alveolar [t]-like segment.

If anyone has examples of such a process, whether as a synchronic
alternation or as a documented or reconstructible sound change, I'd be very
happy to hear about it, and to post a summary.

Thanks and happy holidays to all!
